7:01 am
good morning, everyone. boy, a lot of stories developing overnight, including a near-miss including two jumbo jets at jfk international airport, right here in new york. it happened monday night. we're going to hear just how close the two airliners came. we have the air traffic control tapes. it was scary. and michelle obama making an emotional speech overnight in south africa. we will hear her inspiring words. she had a chance to see nelson mandela. it wasn't planned. so, we'll have all that coming up. but with the breaking news of a massive prison break. 40 al qaeda terrorists. martha raddatz has been tracking that overnight. martha? >> reporter: good morning, robin. 40 militants now on the loose in yemen. 40 al qaeda militants. this is considered the most dangerous country in the world towards the united states. the president there had to flee to saudi arabia. he was badly injured last month. there is chaos there. al qaeda has training camps
7:02 am
there. and this has happened before. militants escaped. and u.s. officials strongly suspected the yemeni government. they were on the verge of civil war. and this is more instability. robin? >> it is and so much going on there. what can you tell us about that american-born terrorist, anwar awlaki. he is still on the loose out there. >> reporter: he is on the loose. there was a near miss. a u.s. drone almost killed him just days after osama bin laden was killed. but he has since disappeared in the chaos. it is getting worse there, robin. >> such a hot spot. thanks for coming in. all right, martha. thank you. let's turn to josh elliott for the other stories developing. >> good morning. we're talking about that near-miss at one of the largest airports. a lufthansa jet speeding toward takeoff at jfk airport, here in new york, approaching some 180 miles per hour, when an egypt
7:03 am
airplane took a wrong turn on to its runway. now, the lufthansa pilots had to hit the brakes, so hard they worried they became overheated. let's listen to what it all sounded like. >> cancel takeoff plans. >> lufthansa, 411 heavy is rejecting takeoff. now we hold our position? >> yes, hold your position as we see what's going on. no need to speak about it on frequency. >> i thought those were coming together. that was quite a show. thought it was going to be a short career. >> sources tell "the new york post" appears the egypt air crew simply took a wrong turn. the faa is investigating. meanwhile, in chicago, thousands were stranded at the city's airport there, after a major storm moved through canceling some 300 flights. a 250,000 people lost power while commuter trains were stopped for up to 5 hours. while to the north in wisconsin,
7:04 am
several reported tornadoes downed trees and damaged dozens of homes. meanwhile, this morning, 11,000 people are under evacuation orders in north dakota where the souris river is about to overtake the city of minot. the worst flood in 40 years. part of the city could be under water for up to six weeks. meanwhile, in southern arizona, at least 58 homes have now been destroyed by that massive wildfire, burning near sierra vista. one that's not even half-contained. crews are facing more hot and dry conditions today. overseas financial markets are getting a boost after the prime minister of greece survived a no confidence vote. his proposed spending cuts have touched off violent protests in the nation amid concern that the greek debt crisis could now sink the global economy. and another blow to the newt gingrich presidential campaign. his top two fund-raisers have quit. 16 other top staffers resigned earlier this month amid reports that the campaign is now some $100 million in debt. that is a quick check on the
7:05 am
headlines. now, back to you, george. >> thanks, josh. with that, let's get to the latest republican candidate to officially jump into the race, former utah governor jon huntsman in the studio. thanks for coming in. >> thank you, george. >> president obama said to make a very big speech tonight, announcing his exit strategy from afghanistan. likely to say that 10,000 troops will come home, all the surge troops, 30,000 by 2012. does that sound like the right strategy? in the past you said we're wasting strategic resources. >> it sounds a little slow and a little cautious when you look at one out of every six dollars in support of what we're doing in afghanistan. >> more now. >> well, i think over the next year i think there is room to draw down more. >> how many more? >> well, we'll get serious about the numbers at some point. but i think more aggressive than -- >> more than 10,000 over the next year? >> more than 10,000 over the
7:06 am
next year. i think what you want to be left with is a good counterterror capability, an intelligence collection capable, some trading capability. i think we have to say 9 years and 50 days into the conflict. the money that has been spent between both conflicts, well over a trillion dollars, i think we have to say what have we accomplished in afghanistan? >> let's talk about the economy. you promised yesterday a civil campaign, as you addressed our number one challenge on the economy. but the obama campaign hasn't been shy about taking on your ideas right away. the first press release from the campaign was directed at you. what ben lobalt had to say -- wipe out investments for the future. and would the tax cuts for the richest americans, while shifting the burden on to seniors and middle-class families. he says you're proposing a return to the failed economic policies that led us into the recession. >> we're in economic dire straits. this country needs a serious conversation about where we go from here.
7:07 am
it has to be serious about entitlements on the table. all of them. defense department on the table about how to revive the economy that doesn't carry with it a lot of confidence. until there's confidence, you won't get businesses willing to deploy capital investment -- >> they're saying your embrace of the ryan budget will hurt middle-class families. >> there's a lot of political hyperbole making the rounds today. what the ryan plan is is a real proposal. i have yet to see anything from the democrats that would resemble a serious proposal on the table. i see campaign commercials that go on that use scare tactics. but what ryan has done is actually put some concrete measures on the table, the deal with entitlements. the deal with spending longer-term. >> so you'd -- >> there's a lot there to like. >> the president's team has said you've been changing your tune. and of course you served as the president's ambassador to china. and once wrote he was a
7:08 am
remarkable leader. but david axelrod and others said when you were ambassador they had meetings where behind the scenes you embraced the president's economic plans. and you encouraged his efforts on health care. when they say that, are they not telling the truth? >> i think a lot of that is nonsense. >> not true? >> when you -- listen, when a group comes to town, as they did once for a state visit, when you greet them, you congratulate them on what they're doing, good work on your legislative victories. that should not be smis misinterpreted as a wholesale embrace of what they're doing. i don't know where that's coming from. the fact that everyone -- >> it's coming from david axelrod. >> you would expect that, you know, in a political environment. but, listen, i have respect for the president. he's a good man. he's earnest and hard working. we have fundamental disagreements on the direction of the country. 2012 is going to be a critically important election year because it will have everything to do
7:09 am
with resetting our numbers. getting our economy back on track. and i believe resetting our position in the world from a generational standpoint. >> finally, i have to ask about your first campaign ad. that motocross rider going across the desert. that turns out it isn't you. what are you trying to say with that ad? >> if had been me we would have been going a lot faster. my riding gear, we couldn't set out the logistics. it's to get people talking. you know, you throw up a corny commercial. and it gets people talking. and i think we've achieved the intended purpose. and here we are. now, a day into it and feeling pretty good. >> you certainly have done that. we'll see you on the trail. >> thanks. now, to a story sure to outrage taxpayers everywhere. lavish, overseas travel for government officials and a program that's raising lots of question, thanks in part to abc's investigation and our brian ross. and, brian, let me understand
7:10 am
this. they were traveling to study billboards? >> reporter: that's exactly right, robin. for years, the federal government has spent millions of taxpayer dollars, sending large contingents of bureaucrats around the world, to look at and take pictures of the roads and highways of foreign countries. and to study outdoor advertising, billboards. the first stop last year was australia, with the 12-member team staying at a luxury hotel on sydney's famed harbor. meals were scheduled at the country's top restaurants. and taxpayers picked up the bill for cocktail parties thrown by the american officials for their australian counterparts. all set up so the americans could look at australian billboards, snapping photos that ended up in a 76-page report about outdoor advertising policy that few people ever saw. >> the taxpayers certainly should be outraged that their
7:11 am
money is being spent on this type of activity, when our roads are falling apart, gas taxes and prices are at an all-time high. >> reporter: but for the 12-member team, made up mostly of federal and state highway officials, it was an all-expense-paid trip from around the world. from australia, they moved on to sweden to look at outdoor advertising there. then to the netherlands and on to scotland. >> no one even gets to take a vacation like that. it really is a ridiculous use of our money. >> reporter: the group finished their tour of the world's billboards in london, with everyone staying at a luxury hotel around the corner from buckingham palace. the final report, filled with snapshots of billboards, called the trip's result a large savings of research dollars and time. that was the official position, until abc news began to investigate. last night, just hours after we asked secretary of transportation raymond lahood
7:12 am
about the program, which has spent more than $12 million over the last decade, lahood said he ordered it to be suspended. the action came at the very time another team of his officials were already in the middle of a trip right now. they won't be back until next week. >> this definitely falls under the pointless waste category. >> words well chosen by secretary lahood. >> he didn't waste any time. we'll switch gears. pharmacies across the country are on high alert today, taking new measures to protect their stores, after a brutal execution in broad daylight at a long island pharmacy. andrea canning is on the story. and everyone is so concerned because this killer is on the loose. >> reporter: this man is an animal. police say he may be back for more having killed these innocent people execution style but detectives are revealing he wasn't after the cash register.
7:13 am
he was after prescription painkillers. and has some pharmacies taking precautions with this crime on the rise across the country. police are on a desperate manhunt to find this man. considered extremely dangerous. his image captured here after stealing a backpack full of prescription painkillers and going on a murder rampage, killing everyone in the store. >> so horrible. i can't believe it, actually. >> reporter: two of the victims were customers. jamie was planning a wedding. her fiance discovered her body in the store. the other two worked at the pharmacy. jennifer, just 17, was supposed to go to her senior prom this week. >> she didn't deserve this. >> reporter: police say the suspect calmly walked out of the store and now fear he could strike again soon. possibly desperate for more drugs. they say addicts and dealers are so desperate to get their hands on the prescription pills they often leave behind the money. >> it was a question of going in
7:14 am
there, getting oxycontin and getting out of there. >> we have cameras here, cameras here. >> reporter: drug enforcement agents have been calling on pharmacist everywhere to boost security. long island alone has seen a 125% increase in holdups in the past two years. the pharmacy in this case, haven drugs, had been struck 3 times in the past 19 months. >> when something like that happen, i don't think any place is safe. >> reporter: residents of the neighborhood are now just hoping no one else is killed before this cold-blooded killer is finally caught. >> this guy is a monster. absolutely a monster. and they will catch him. >> reporter: as i mentioned one of the victims, jamie, was to be married in october. instead, we now have word that she'll be buried on saturday in the wedding dress she recently picked out with her mother. and there's a $5,000 reward leading to the capture of this guy. >> absolute animal. now to the first lady and her historic trip to south africa. she's been making headlines everywhere she goes. josh is back and tracking this
7:15 am
for us. >> indeed, robin. very enthusiastic reception for the first lady today. a standing ovation for her and really her words of inspiration, as she spoke to a collection of young women from across africa. ♪ this morning in soweto, a place smon synonymous with the struggle against apartheid, she struck an emotional chord as she encouraged people to create racial harmony and transform the world. >> as bobby kennedy said years ago, you are joined with fellow young people in every land. they, struggling with their problems, and you with yours, but all joined in a common purpose, determined to build a better future. if anyone ever tells you that you shouldn't or you can't, and i want you to say with one voice, the voice of a generation, you tell them, yes,
7:16 am
we can. >> reporter: the first lady, her daughters and her mother, marion robinson, had earlier met with former south african president nelson mandela. the first lady had never met the man whose lifelong struggle united his country. in fact, they had been visiting his foundation, when mandela, in ill health of late, had surprisingly sent word that they were invited to his home. and after meeting with mandela, mrs. obama and her family visited a day-care center and showed off their dancing skills. ♪ >> so, all we could do -- >> reporter: and showed how reading is fun and fundamental by sharing an american classic with the children of johannesburg. dr. seuss' "the cat in the hat." >> i know some good games we could play, said the cat. i know some new tricks, said the cat in the hat. >> terrific stuff. robin, you can be sure the girls
7:17 am
will have plenty of fodder for the how i spent my summer vacation essays they'll have due. >> "cat in the hat" is universal. >> that plus saying, nelson and i, we hung out. >> we were in town and decided to stop on by. >> great to see him again healthy enough to receive them. he was terrific. let's get over, now, to sam. good morning, there, sam. >> good morning, robin, george, josh, everyone. thunderstorms, a lot on the board. look at that red zone spread out. from shreveport up to detroit and back over to philly. this will kick up in the afternoon. some big heat, searing heat opens up in the southwest. we're not talking records yet but it's taken a while to get this kind of heat. eye cool there, 109 in palm springs. 106 in vegas. excessive heat warnings from palm springs, to phoenix, to yuma involved in that, as well.
7:18 am
7:19 am
happy first full day of summer. hope you celebrated the solstice, george. >> absolutely, sam. thank you for that. now to a little boy on a mission. a 7-year-old in michigan really, really missed his dad so he did something about it. and rob nelson explains why that set police on a chase. >> reporter: it was this jarring 911 call that first alerted police that something was amiss. >> believe it or not, i just passed about a 5-year-old, 6-year-old kid flying down the road with a red pontiac sunbird. >> reporter: that's him. a 7-year-old boy racing down this michigan road monday morning in his stepfather's car. >> i was in fear he would hit somebody or crash. >> reporter: the terrifying ride caught on camera by this police car dash cam. >> he was traveling 50 miles an hour in a 55 zone. and he had driven off on the shoulder a couple of times. >> reporter: there were deep ditches on the side of this country road, which the young driver kept swerving into it. >> you can see that cloud of dust. and that car is sliding.
7:20 am
>> reporter: with police in hot pursuit, the boy speeds up. and authorities decide they have to take action. one officer pulls ahead to get in front and force him to slow down. >> when i went past him you could see the look on his face, he was crying. and i was trying to get around him as fast as i could. >> the plan worked. the car came to a stop but not a complete one. >> the car lunged forward. so, my interaction with him shifted from trying to get him to unlock the door to get him to put his foot on the brake. >> reporter: he was shoeless and in pajamas telling police he was trying to get to the house of his biological dad. for "good morning america," rob nelson, abc news, new york. >> see him when he gets that -- i'm so glad that ended up okay. >> i know. >> i hope he gets to see his dad. >> that, too. he apparently really wanted to. coming up, surprise witness in the murder trial of casey anthony. could the inmate who was in jail with her blow apart casey's defense? and bad behavior caught on tape. the growing risk of being rude in public as shaming those viral. óó

who is this woman? she may be the key to a shocking twist in the casey anthony trial. fellow inmate. right next to casey's cell. she could also seal casey's fate. "good morning america," we'll get to that in just a moment. boy, there's a new twist every day in this trial. >> and we're asking why now? why are we learning about her now? we'll ask dan abrams and nancy grace about that. also, the stress express. the passengers melt down on a train goes viral thanks to another passenger wielding a cell phone camera. always seems to have one out. we're going to show you how more and more people behaving badly are getting called out online. >> no such thing as private moments anymore. and here's the question of the morning. big debate. is there no place like home when
7:31 am
it comes to your teenagers and sex? >> you heard that. >> that's right. elisabeth hasselbeck talked to teenagers and parents and this is a hot one. some saying the best thing to do is bring it inside the home. you know what's going on. others are saying, are you kidding me? we'll look at that in a little bit. >> i've already posed that on twitter. and the response has been unbelievable, as you can imagine. that's in our next half hour. right now, to the bombshell in the casey anthony trial. the prosecution is investigating a woman they say may unravel the defense's claim that little caylee accidentally drowned in her grandparents' pool. ashleigh banfield is down in orlando for us. good morning, ash. >> reporter: hi, robin. you know, this was such a bombshell. and i got to be honest with you. it seemed like a run-of-the-mill day. first, we had a defense botanist who discussed leaf litter actually suggested they may have been dumped while casey was sitting in a jail cell.
7:32 am
then, a dna expert said if that duct tape was the murder weapon little caylee's dna should have been all over it. but then, the bombshell that was supposed to be, it wasn't. but then that incredible moment happened when the jury wasn't there and neither was the witness. what started as a routine discovery issue in court -- >> and that information was provided to you by law enforcement when? >> reporter: -- may turn out to be a major discovery in the case. prosecutors are now investigating a tip about a witness that could drop a bombshell. >> the name of the witness is april whalen. >> reporter: april whalen. a repeat offender who back in 2009 was held for five days with casey anthony in the same dorm at the county jail. and april's life story sounds an awful like casey's defense. >> her child died in a swimming pool and was found by the child's grandfather. >> reporter: april's family wasn't interested in answering our questions. but april herself may have to answer to prosecutors. they plan to ask her about what, if anything, she shared with
7:33 am
casey or other inmates. the jail told abc news, there are no jail records, investigations, or reports that indicate any contact between anthony and whalen occurred. but whalen's parents have a different story. telling abc news, the two did talk. describing their conversations as, quote, stupid stuff. nothing in particular. >> hi. >> reporter: while plenty of video showed her talking to her parents, she's forbidden to talking to other inmates. so, if casey did hear whalen's story, how did it happen? >> miss whalen was in an adjacent cell. >> reporter: the cells aren't soundproof and inmates hear each other through the vents. the question is now, will the jury hear the inmate in the courtroom? and then, also the prosecutors offered up some pretty interesting new discovery as well about the computer activity on the day that casey says that little girl drowned. the prosecutors say, whatever
7:34 am
was going on on that family computer, really might indicate there wasn't so much of an energy going on in that backyard. but we don't know if we're going to hear about it yet, robin. it's such a mystery. >> if we do, i know you'll tweet about it as you have been throughout the trial. >> reporter: i have a feeling. >> yes, all right. >> reporter: we're at 1,400 right now, i think. >> my goodness. have a good day. thanks. let's bring in the rest of our trial team. nancy grace feeling much better and she is the host of "nancy grace" on hln. good to have you with us. and "gma" legal analyst dan abrams back in the studio with us. let's talk about this surprise potential witness, april whalen. what is your take on all this? >> well, i have taken a look at the two stories. and they are absurdly similar. both are toddler children. both above-ground pools. both found by the grandfather. both wandered away while the family inside. both get out of the pool dead.
7:35 am
the moment they're taken out of the pool, essentially, they're in the same neighborhood. they're only a few miles apart. i don't know if you've been in a jailhouse before. i hope you haven't. but you can hear everything going on. it keeps you up all night long, the chattering and talking. if they were adjacent cellmates, tot mom, casey anthony, could definitely hear what april whalen was saying. that's not even a concern. there is no coincidence in criminal law. these stories are startlingly similar. and it seems as if tot mom copycatted her story point accidental drowning from inmate april whalen. >> i don't know. this seems to me to be so speculative. sure, it's possible that casey anthony heard -- overheard an inmate talking about this in a prison. but then to suggest that then she says, okay. that's going to be my defense. that's finally what i'm going to do.
7:36 am
i mean, is it possible? yeah, it's possible. is it likely? in my view, i predict that we will not see april whalen on the witness stand. >> why are we just hearing about her now? >> why are we? two reasons. >> had a good thing going. sorry, dan. the state has a good thing going. why would they blow it up with an inmate who will lose credibility on cross-examination? why blow the position by putting up one, stinky witness? >> i do think it would be very speculative. yes, why now. first of all because the defense just laid out in its opening statement, its theory. so, its theory that the grandfather finds the child in the pool. and he's the one who takes the body so prosecutors say that's the first time we heard about that. so, this new witness we only realized could be relevant once that defense was. so, i think that's a the reason the prosecutors would say this is a new witness. you may ask why didn't they present it in their own case?
7:37 am
"a," people come forward, evidence comes forward. and "b" because the defense's opening statement was a lot -- or the first time a lot heard about it. >> the prosecution digging deeper and saying it doesn't jive with what casey says went down and with the computer. >> that could be an important witness. if they're able to demonstrate based on computer records, the story, the account, the timing of what casey's saying she was doing when doesn't make sense that could be significant. you heard the defense team on this complaining. saying, we're supposed to get this earlier. >> guy, you do you know what the search is? looking at images of shot girl, images of girls selling shots are on the computer popping up. there is a search there on the day she says her daughter drown in the backyard.
7:38 am
and you want me to believe she's on the computer, with her daughter dead, dripping wet, on the living room floor. and she's looking up images of what shot girls should wear when she takes a job as a shot girl? no. that's crazy. and the defense has had this for two years. and now saying they didn't know anything about it. not going to fly. >> dan, you were saying yesterday no way do you think casey will take the stand. nancy, you are feeling a little bit differently about that. we could see casey anthony take the stand? >> well, i think the more the defense puts up that -- the more they're painting themselves into a box, that makes it more desperate for them, more likely she will take the stand. conventional wisdom is, never, ever, never and never put your client on the stand. which i think baez will probably do it. >> yeah.
7:39 am
i was going to say -- i was going to say to force nancy's hand on whether she's going to take the stand. it's a tough call. it is a tough, tough call. but i don't think it's going to happen. >> dan, nancy, we can tell you're feeling better. thank you, guys. >> bye. >> you can see more tonight on the casey anthony trial on a special "nightline," at 10:00. sam? >> thank you, robin. thunderstorms start popping into the northeast right along the stationary front. there are five states that have flood watches out for this area. we think it will be one to two inches of rain but since it lasts a couple of days it will be more. where some celebration is going on. eastern texas from san antonio and the border there all the way up toward shreveport getting a heavy line of thunderstorms. this is one to two inches of rain here. 80% of texas is in the highest level of drought. they're getting one to two inches of rain in east texas. that's a very good thing. this is the hot zone where the storms are in red.
